Disappearances 10

Disappearances 10, 2015, oil on gesso panel, 40″ x 30″, private collection

The story  behind the painting:

Disappearances 10.  Is there a wall between Dreams and Reality? How does the everyday existence reflects itself onto the Dream? When exactly do Dreams come to life? What is that moment when our sand castles stop growing out of the dreamscapes, when do our morning stars collide into one blinding Sun? At this fleeting moment we can be whole again.  (Allois and Jörge)

Disappearances 17, 2015, oil on gesso panel, 48″ x 36″

The story  behind the painting:

Disappearances 17.  How to describe a cloud to the blind, or an angry sea to a highlander? What does color White taste like? Maybe like sugar, or salt, or maybe like snow: its irrelevant, nobody cares. But we all know what color Red is: it tastes like blood, it smells like danger, it feels like pain! How do you describe the beauty and the loneliness of an open sea? Why do you hold onto the fading memories of those left ashore, still waving farewells from the safety of routine and boredom? You don’t, you shouldn’t, you never reveal your feelings to the indifferent. If you are an artist, you have nowhere to run, all you can do is hide behind the colors. If you leave enough of yourself in your work, then someday you may be allowed to break the bond, you may win one pass on board of a Flying Dutchman. You will disappear.  (Allois and Jörge)

Disappearances 15

Disappearances 15: Flying Dutchman, 2015, oil on canvas, 48″ x 36″, framed

The story  behind the painting:

It’s a wonderful world and its a beautiful life! Throw away your sarcasm, stop crawling back and forth through the looking glass. Look through the wave, feel the wind, get burned by the Sun! Leave the deeply rooted and heavily anchored behind. There is no peace in quiet harbors, there is no kindness among the indifferent, there is no safety in their numbers. You will be saved by those who sail beyond the horizon, try and catch up with them.

Emperor Collection: Emperor

Emperor, oil on linen, 2016, 40.5″x 30.5″, framed, private collection

The story  behind the painting:
Rudolph and Bambino.  I am known to men by many names: as an Atlas who holds the World on his shoulders. or as the Turtles who keep the World afloat, as Father-figure or benevolent God who keeps the World safe. These minor duties are actually in the hands of my pet Bambino, the destiny of Earth is in her hands. When she feels quirky or bored, she plays with you and I receive a lot of complaints coming from all the Churches and Cathedrals of Earth. I never punish Bambino, I adore her playfulness, I let her be herself.
My duties of much greater magnitude and infinitely more boring. I am the Emperor, I keep the whole Universe in check. I make sure that cosmological constants are set within your comfort levels, that Entropy does not consume all the energy of your world, that black holes do not suck all the matter from your Galaxies. One day I will be allowed to relinquish my duties, one day I will trade places with Bambino. I will be young again.

Marcy. Sweet Assault.  Welcome Home, my darling!

And if you ever betray me, my wild bees will kill you! You are safe with me, my Love! (Allois and Jörge)

The story behind the painting: 

Olive & Leila.   My name is Leila, Olive is my butler. He is also my tutor, my confidante and, above all, he is my hair stylist. As a woman, I carry all my memories with me, these memories are intertwined between the curls of my golden hair. Some memories are dear to me, while others pain me a lot. Every night Olive brushes my hair with his magic comb and makes all the ugly memories hide and disappear. This is our little secret of my eternal youth.

The story  behind the painting:

My name is Margo, I am the Collector. I collect dreams. Not every dreams but only the most precious ones: my own.  My collection is very large because I am infinitely old.  Unlike those who forget, or lose or even betray their dreams, I keep my dreams safe and vivid and sometimes I even make them real. Collection of my childhood dreams protects me when I am getting sad or lonely. That is why I am still a little girl.
